Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Anderson is a tease to watch out of the bullpen. He has a live arm with a fastball that pushes into the upper 90s and a solid breaking ball. He has utilized that combination to strike out 28% of the major-league hitters he has faced over the past two seasons. He has also struggled to locate both pitches and has walked 16% of the hitters he has faced leading to a 4.75 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in just over 100 career innings. He simply cannot be used in high-leverage situations with that kind of walk rate. If he could find consistent command of his pitches, his career path could take off in a hurry as the expected stats were very much in his favor in 2019, but to date, he has been unable to get out of his own way.
Anderson spent the bulk of the 2017 season at the Double-A level, showing very little promise as he posted a 36:29 K:BB and a 5.06 ERA for Mobile. By May 14 of 2018, however, he'd picked up his first big-league save, and he'd go on to record three more for the Angels to go along with a 4.07 ERA in 55.1 innings. He throws hard but wasn't exactly dominant. To become a trustworthy high-leverage reliever, Anderson will have to make a considerable dent in his walk rate, which sat at an untenable 16.6% in his rookie campaign, second-worst among all pitchers who threw at least 50 innings. Control problems are unsurprising for a pitcher who throws his slider 55 percent of the time. Anderson's 27.8% strikeout rate is more good than great and isn't enough for him to overcome such a significant deficiency.
